So Andrew's cousin got married on Saturday... and since his cousin is half Iranian, there was quite a bit of Middle Eastern dancing at this wedding.
Fortunately, I have years and years of Middle Eastern dance training. :)
Man, did it ... Read more
I fasted for Yom Kippur yesterday...
...and it's weird, but I feel more energized today. I've heard research that the occasional fast can actually be good for you - I wonder if this is true?
Anyway, I've started Week 3 of P90X, and I'... Read more
And once again am hitting my stride. :) P90X is really an amazing program - I will never stop singing its praises!
I think I'll be road-ready by October 1 - and I'm going to start running again, REALLY SUPER OMG SLOWPOKE SLOWLY. If I rei... Read more

I made this, and it's really, REALLY good - and super good for you!
I'm not sure Andrew liked it very much, but then again, he... Read more
Decided against a workout last night and instead just did an hour of lovely stretching, thanks to Tony Horton. Taking a rest day is making all the difference for me... I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready to tackle chest & back today!

Going to do the stretch program at lunch in my boss's office (he's gone today, woot!), and then maybe a very light workout when I get home from work. I'm still afraid I'm going to reinjure myself, so I'm going to take my prescribed rest days ve... Read more
Almost done with week 1 of P90X: Round Three! I'll tell you what, it's good to be back in the routine. There's something very... I don't know - comforting? - about something you do every single day that's good for you, even if you don't necess... Read more
For those of you that don't know me, in a competition, I am formidable. Chances are, if you happen to be in the same competition with me, you're going to say, "whoa, she's pretty intense."
You would be 100% correct.
I don't do it to b... Read more
Had a REALLY challenging day yesterday... it's autumn, and that means apple cider doughnuts make a regular appearance around here. Someone brought some in yesterday, and I really had a hard time resisting them - but I did... Read more
I promise you, I'm still here, and I'm still doing well. :)
As I'd posted before, I was dealing with some injury - and I am mostly healed. Soon as my left ankle healed up (no pain anymore, yay!), my RIGHT achilles started firing up for re... Read more
Ahh, kenpo. How Iíve missed you.
I had to modify some of the jumpy moves because the ankleís still a little wonky, but like Tony says: an injury or a disability is not an excuse to sit around and do nothing, itís an opportunity to be creati... Read more
That is the sound that a frustrated athlete makes. >:(
Tried to do plyo last night... and my ankle pretty much went "LOL NOPE!!!" and I was flat on my butt for the rest of the night.
But, I'll not be kept down! To... Read more
I am referencing the healing mojo/vibes/etc. :)
I feel pretty good today! Ankle's still a bit stiff, but I think I'm on the downslope of the hill now. I had a workout last night - chest, shoulders & triceps - and my ankle started out bei... Read more
So, about a week ago, I had a really great run... was feeling terrific about myself... right?
I rolled my ankle during that run, but didn't think anything of it because it didn't hurt... AT THE TIME. I had to deviate off the sidewalk becau... Read more
